About

Ellie is a recent graduate of the University of Brighton. Ellie’s latest works aim to draw attention to Britain’s declining trades, in particular the brush making industry. Many of her designs, which are all hand-made, most from traditional materials, combine the functions of existing brushes to form something new. The intention is to highlight the diversity and specificity of the humble brush.
